Mind Altering Space is a video exhibition curated by local artist and DC native Joseph Orzal, featuring eight undergraduate students from the Corcoran College of Art + Design. Each work is loosely based on the idea of a person’s mindset directly altering the space around them. Whether this change comes from a dream-like place, one of mental instability, or is a reaction to society and politics, each work invites the viewer to an environment unlike that of the mundane day to day. The show features the work of:
This work of simultaneously playing videos offer a view of the artist’s life as dictated by his daily routines. The act of repetitive processes as a means for depression and vice versa is explored.
Using environment and symbols, this work explores the ideas of God’s presence in the everyday.
Psychedelic portraits show how arcane symbols from an individual’s everyday life can, when ritualized, manifest and act as a personal diety.
The construction of a sanctuary by the elder will leave the young with a safety net as they move forward.
The notion of materialism transforms an interior space. Dreamlike flashes to a night scene questions the actual value of money and if its value is simply a mental construct.
Internal conflict in the domestic setting leads a woman to destroy a part of herself.
Consumption and regurgitation are tools in which to portray the female experience. Spatial conflicts between interior and exterior personify social critique and judgement.
